Hello, Year 9!
Here is a visual resource which summarises the plot of The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton in only two minutes and nineteen seconds. It is quite difficult to fit an entire plot of a novel into such a limited time frame. Therefore, I have some questions for you...
1) If you were to recreate this book summary, what aspects of the book would you play a larger focus on and why do you believe that they are important?
2) What is another multimedia resource that could be equally (or more) effective in providing information about a book summary such as this? Create one and share it with the class.
Here is an excellent resource regarding questions that a critical thinker asks whilst reading. I believe this will be incredibly useful for you as you develop your chapter summary for chapter four of The Outsiders which is due at the end of this week. Remember - you can present your chapter summary in any way you wish - a story board, a mind map, a Prezi, a short multimedia presentation, whatever takes your fancy.
As a critical thinker, you will need to develop the skills to read between the lines of what the author (in this case, S. E. Hinton) is describing through the text. This infographic provides you with some questions to help you get into the role of a critical thinker, and get you started on your project.
